It would be a natural thing to believe that six weeks into any project would cause you to lose a little interest and enthusiasm. For some folks perhaps that’s what you are feeling as we complete the sixth week in our Education emphasis of KOG2ILM. For others however, this sixth week has been God’s perfect timing as you have found your place to serve through meeting the needs of a teacher with a simple request, perhaps you answered the call to give a teacher support through being their prayer partner this week. There are others who heard God’s voice so loudly this week and are stepping out in faith to commit to build a relationship with a young child through the TORO program. Just this week these two requests were made from our Alderman partners:
“We would like a basketball and football for our recess time. Also I am doing a concession stand as a part of my token economy and would greatly appreciate some help providing the treats. It can be any kinds of chips, crackers, or snack items that are individually packaged as well as drinks (just no sodas). I am so grateful that we have you guys available to us!”
“We have 2 school secretaries that missed the prayer partner sign ups if anyone can help they’d love to be prayed for!!!”
Within fifteen minutes each of these requests were filled with generous folks willing and ready to answer God’s call. So how about you? Have you wanted to plug-in but not sure if you’ve missed the boat? Don’t ever doubt God’s timing – there’s always room for you and there’s always a need that needs to be met.
To God be all the glory- great things He has done!
